Broadbent Douro Reserve 2018
The wine is dark purple in color with an electric pink rim and slight staining of the tears. On the nose the wine has notes of ripe dark cherry, blackberry, black plum, orange rind with clove, blueberry preserve, violets, and forest notes. On the palate the wine has ripe and juicy dark fruit, it is full-bodied with substantial yet ripe tannin and a long finish.
An appealing red with bright boysenberry and red plum notes offering a fresh acidity backed by accents of white pepper and dried herbs. Moderate tannins show some grip. Drink now through 2024. 500 cases made, 500 cases imported.
